The Bourg Modulen Collator expands as your business expands … from 4 to 400 workstations with production speeds up to 6,000 sets per hour.

This remarkable vacuum-feed system can handle a variety of stocks, from one-carbon paper to 16-page signatures, in sheet sizes from 5-1/2″ x 6-7/8″ to 13-3/4″ x 19-5/8″. Also, Bourg’s A-2 Modulen provides an expanded sheet size of 5-1/2″ x 6-7/8″ up to 17-1/2″ x 25″. Any combination of stockweights and sizes can run as an intermix. Speeds are variable from 1500 up to 6000 sets per hour.

Over the last 19 years, the Bourg Modulen collating system has proven to be the most versatile collator / gathering system in the world. With its large load capacity, vacuum pick up and transfer, speed, and accuracy, it meets the demands of almost every collating and bookletmaking application. The Modulen’s unique ability to handle the world’s widest range of stock and material add to its reputation as the solution to difficult gathering applications. Stock weights vary from one time carbon and onion skin to a 32-page signature and chip board.

Vacuum pick-up and transfer of material, miss and double detection, and an extremely large load capacity (33-1/2″, or 8,375 sheets of 20# bond paper) allow hours of error-free operation before reloading. The finishing end of the system allows for many choices: saddlestitching, jogging, shrink packaging, polybagging, or transfer to another post-processing device. The Bourg Modulen is available in two models. The standard “S” model will collate sheet sizes from 5-1/2″ x 6-7/8″ (4″ x 4″ on request) to 13-3/4″ x 19-5/8″. The “A2″ Modulen has the ability to collate sheet sizes up to 17-1/2″ x 25-1/2”.

Normal speed is 1500 to 3200 sets per hour in the times one (xl) conveyor mode. The times two (x2) conveyor mode allows for the production of 6000 sets per hour.
